    My reservation was cancelled 3 days prior to my reservation. I had planned on taking a cousin visiting from the U.K. and it was to be a special evening for her last day in Vancouver. I was very upset that there was a cancellation with such short notice and I could not book any similar venue.

    The food was sub par.. two people at my table had to ask for forgotten orders. The Bruschetta was cold. The Gnocchi (only vegetarian dish) was flavorless and sat like a lump of dough in my stomach. My partner had the fresh special.. he found it bland and "alright". $200 for two unsatisfied people was ridiculously over priced even including drinks. My friends with the cold appys were also unimpressed.

    The food was very tasty and despite what we read on previous review, there were sufficient vegetarian options (but no Vegan). My only disappointment was there was no bread or rolls served with the pasta. It would have made the meal much more complete. In fact, it would be nice if bread and/or rolls were served with every entree

    Hello, Thank you for dining with us! We do have a couple of Vegan options on the menu, the brussel sprouts dish with almond 'cheese' and the regular tomato bruscetta. Hopefully you can try these out next time you dine with us. Unfortunately, because we make all of our bread in house, we cannot produce enough to serve with every meal, we do have a very popular garlic bread on the menu which goes perfectly with pasta. We look forward to seeing you again

    We enjoyed the band very much,the reason we went..it was Mothers day ,I felt the waitres was nice but the service was very slow and our food took a long time and we got some of our appetizers while we had our main meal already... The portion of the pasta special was kinda small...the chicken dinner was AMAZING! I'd like to experience it again..love the decor and hope maybe we woukd get our drinks and appetizers within at least 20 minutes after ordering....

    The band was good but not really a band to dance to. Food was bad. The bruschetta was on stale bread and when we complained we were given a steak knife to cut it. That still didn’t work!

    Vivace on the drive was a good place to enjoy live music. The band was incredible and the group enjoyed dancing our night away. Happy menu was great, service was good despite being short staffed. Unfortunately the gnocchi was very bland and the corn that was served with it was badly cooked.

    We were so impressed with our visit to Vivace On The Drive. The ambience was perfect, the food was amazing and the service was very attentive. We appreciated the specials offered as well. Looking forward to going back on a night when there is live music.
